A short 4 week course commencing Friday August 16th 2019.
Most of us know of the phrase “lateral thinking”. These words were coined by Edward de Bono, in his work on the creative thinking process in the 1960s and 70s.
How wonderful it would be, to be able to think up new solutions to problems, new ways of doing things – it could be how to save the world, or it could be to design a new sandwich filling. Or something in between!
The great news is: you don’t have to find a lateral thinker to do these things for you. With a few simple techniques, you can develop the ability to generate fresh ideas about anything, anytime. It’s easy, and it’s fun.
This course will teach you why most “brainstorming” methods don’t work, and how to do it better; why your brain works the way it does, and what that means for finding new ideas; and a series of techniques which you can use to develop new ideas for yourself, whenever you need to.
You will also learn how to record new thoughts in a way that means you can develop them further without wasting time trying to recall “that good idea I thought of last week”.
During the sessions you will perform thinking exercises which will show you how to use the creative thinking techniques; and you will be able to bring-your-own problems or ideas to work on.
The course will run for four 2-hour sessions.
